I am trying to place an image over an area I already applied bg-image to. The image on top looks and feel overpowering, it also make the page a little bit empty due to the change in contrast.

If I must have the second image over the first, how can this be done so that it complements each other and not totally dominating.nosecond image

The best way to make an image less dominating is for it to only have two colors. Eshops use this method on company logos - they remove the color and every logo contains only black and white (or another color instead of black depending on the theme).

look at the brand panel - does it take away your attention from other elements on the page?

look at the brand panel in the middle - does it take away your attention from other elements on the page?

You could also try selectively removing strong colors but that may end up messing the image.
